The climate didn’t resonate for them! I am so perplexed by this notion that a flower, a part of nature could be in or out of fashion. This is so outside of my life experience!

I love them whatever the nonsense pedalled by others but I promise they did become a rarety in Britain for a while when it became de rigeur to grow all things white. I did not adhere. My grandmother always counselled that fashion is what suits you and dahlias suit me perfectly so long as they suit the soil. Actually I can’t think of a single flower I dislike…. why would one?

The second one was taken later in the afternoon when the sun was lower and behind the flower which gave it a quality of translucence with more dimension/layers. The flower also seemed more delicate with the petals appearing thinner, transparent LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ↓ Photography Journal Blog May 20, 2018 • 10:23 pm I agree, and the transparent effect is just a lovely one I think.
